Car Driver Hurt In Crash With School Bus
A car ran a red light and hit a school bus Wednesday near Georgetown, injuring the car driver but no one on the bus, state police said.
The crash involving an Indian River School District bus – carrying four students, ages 11 through 16 – occurred about 6:45 a.m. on Du Pont Boulevard (U.S. 113) and East Redden Road, Master Cpl. Gary E. Fournier said.
Desheena L. McCray, 31 of Georgetown, was driving north in the right lane of U.S. 113 as the bus driven by Donna F. Billings, 59, of Bridgeville, was stopped at a red light on Deer Forest Road, waiting to drive across the highway to East Redden Road, Fournier said.
When the light changed and the bus had a green light, Billings began to cross the intersection, he said.
McCray, however, failed to stop for the red light and ran into the right side of the bus, he added.
Emergency medical services personnel transported her to Bayhealth Milford Memorial Hospital for treatment of injuries that were not life-threatening, Fournier said.
She was cited for failure to stop at a red light, he said.
